Is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button a True Story?
A friend of mine told me that The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is based on a true story and I thought he was joking but now I want to know if it's true. I've also read some sites on the internet which say that The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is actually based on a man who was born old and then he started to get younger and younger, so it's a true story.
I really doubt that is the case since it's impossible for a person to be born very old and then die as a little kid. Perhaps there has been a case like that and I'm not aware of it, though it seems unreal and impossible so I want to ask you. Is The Curious Case of Benjamin Button based on a true story? Is it based on a book?
